Intersections Concert Series Welcomes Gene Perry & Rumba Ketumba

About the Event

UC San Diego Park & Market’s Intersections concert series is hosting local Afro-Cuban and Afro-Caribbean music pioneer Gene Perry and his Rumba Ketumba band on Thursday, July 11 at 7 p.m. Gene Perry was born in Puerto Rico but has been a staple in the San Diego music scene since 1969, when he established a beloved Sunday jam session at the Pepper Grove Park by the Centro Cultural de la Raza in Balboa Park that lasted until 1974. Gene and Rumba Ketumba blend a diverse range of music genres–from calypso and reggae to Afro-Cuban and African Diaspora–to create a culturally rich sound like no other.
